At around 11:30pm on July 23 in Beijing’s Chaoyang District near Liangma Bridge, a Ferrari sports car suddenly cut in front of a taxi. Then the driver of the sports car hopped out and moved toward the taxi.

As caught on video, the driver of the Ferrari is seen beating the taxi driver, then on his knees in the middle of the road. The Ferrari driver slapped and kicked the taxi driver and used foul language to berate him.

Later, a male passerby tried to intervene, but he too was beaten and kicked by the Ferrari driver. Neither victim fought back. Both were seen bleeding from the mouth and fell unconscious.

The police arrested the Ferrari driver once the arrived, although the driver claims he was beaten by the cops.

The video was taken by a netizen named Wang, who recorded most of the five minute-long assault.

The driver of the taxi is named Chen, 38. He suffered an ear injury and soft tissue injuries from the assault. The passerby that tried to intervene is named Yi, and he also suffered soft tissue damage and a swollen eye. He apparently now has difficulty walking.

According to Chen, the Ferrari driver had jumped in front of his taxi and said “You hit me!” while pounding on the hood. Another man with the Ferrari driver reportedly said, “He’s drunk; if you’ll come out and talk about it with him, I’m sure it will be all right.”

Here is a video of the incident:

    Did anyone get the license plate of the Ferrari? And why hasn’t that been posted online? And where did he get so drunk? Will this be settled out of court with some hush money or will the Ferrari driver just walk away to drink and drive drunk another day?

    Very frustrating driving a car in China.
    I know his feeling.
    Nice compensation claim for taxi driver and bystander.lay still take the beating = more money.

    Not denying that whacking a taxi driver has some perverse appeal. But it would be interesting to learn who the prince is. Who’s son might that be?
